In the final episode of Star Trek Enterprise, "These are the Voyages", Archer and Trip are drinking a toast from a bottle of Scotch (timestamp 27:23) All I can make out is "20 Year", Malt, "Scotch Whiskey". The name looks like two words or names each beginning with "D". Can anyone make out the name, and is it a real Scotch or something they made up for the show?

  • Sorry, what are you referring to? It was the final episode of Enterprise... Aug 11, 2014 at 2:34
  • He means the time in minutes and seconds since the start of the episode that the scene in question occurs. Aug 11, 2014 at 2:35

    Which is interesting as Scotch implies Scottish Whisky but Whiskey (with an E) suggests Irish.

    @CGCampbell whisky doesn't continue to "smoothen" in the bottle. The age is the time spent in the barrel.

With contrast enhanced, you can clearly see the label reads "Brannon & Braga".

This is obviously an in-joke relating to the show's producer, Brannon Braga

    Think it's indeed "Berman & Braga". There's not enough space for two "n" IMO.

While I do not feel that this is a certain answer, not having a copy of the episode in question nor even having watched it, some participants on the talk page of Memory Alpha's article on the episode believe the label is "Berman & Braga", an in-joke referencing Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, the co-creators of the series.

    Thanks for the link. That is the only reference I've seen for it. Still, it looks like D**** and D******* to me. That's looking at it on Netflix. Pretty funny if that's the case. Aug 11, 2014 at 2:38
